Gran Guadalpin Banus
Spectacular Roof Gardens
I was looking for something pretty special, but a short flight away, for Mum's 70th birthday treat and I found just what we needed in this hotel.
It's open just over a year and is quite cleverly designed to make the very most of the spectacular beachfront site. The hotel is built on four levels over basement and the design is attractive - lots of wood and glass and chrome. The basement area houses the hotel's four or five restaurants and it also opens right onto the small but perfect beach. The first floor houses reception and poolside rooms, and the pool area looks out onto the beach. The other hotel rooms rise in three stories above this with views of the sea, the pool, and the surrounding hills.
There's a great deal of variety in the size of the rooms, with the standard rooms alleged to be small while the superior de luxe junior suites are very spacious and come complete with their own well furnished roof garden and hot tob. I had booked one of these rooms and I was suitably impressed. In addition to the rooftop hot tub there was also a jacuzzi in the bathroom! I must admit that after three days I found the hot tub water was way too hot for my comfort - in hot weather you need them to turn down the temperature a bit! It would be great for late evening use complete with a bottle of champers. Hugely romantic.
The hotel restaurants were a bit hit and miss, but I'll write a seperate review on them. Breakfast, however, was superb.
Drinks are rather expensive, but you expect that when you stay at a hotel like this.
Unique Quality: The staff here are just great. I enquired about hiring a wheelchair for Mum and the hotel provided one free of charge for the week. Everywhere we went, staff members did what they could to make our stay a happy and comfortable one.
Just returned 2 days ago from this lovely hotel, this was the best hotel i have ever stayed in, we stayed in a Suite Banus and the room was out of this world with electronic blinds whihc once were opened the sea view was amazing. the staff were friendly our room was cleaned everday and the mini bar chacked everyday. We orginally booked into Gran Guadalupin in Marbella but changed our minds to here and so glad we did. I have stayed in many hotels around the world and this is by far the best for a relaxin holiday. It isnt in the resort centre but a 10 min walk so finds you there in the lovely port, its not your typical Spanish holiday destination which made it extra special. would highly recommend it. any questions just ask?
